second amendment rights and the second amendment rights of our law-abiding law-ag citizens. we have seen the newtown parents here in washington bravely telling their stories. they deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of aurora deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of more than 30 people who die every single day at the hands of gun violence deserve more from this body. my friends, it is simply time to act. today is the day for this body to show the american people that their voices matter. that when 90% of americans demand us to expand background checks, that we can deliver. we should be able to agree today that we no longer need military-style weapons and ammunition clips on our streets. and we should be able to agree today that it's time to crack down on the illegal handguns being trafficked in our streets into the hands of criminals. four years ago, i met the parents of naisha pryor yard. naisha was a beautiful 17-year-old honor student killed in the prime of her life by an illegal handgun when she was just spending t
and use tax laws and for other purposes. mr. reid: mr. president, i would object to any further proceedings in regard to this bill. the presiding officer: objection having been heard, the bill will be placed on the calendar. mr. reid: mr. president, today this august body will honor the memory of 20 first-grade children, little babies who were gunned down, most of them shot multiple times. we will also honor the teachers and administrators who were killed that day in newtown, connecticut. but we're also going to honor with this legislation tens of thousands of others who were killed by guns each year here in america. we're going to do that by voting on a number of measures to strengthen the laws to prevent gun violence in this nation. mr. president, the families of innocents killed in newtown, aurora, in carson city, blacksburg, in oak creek and columbine really deserve these votes. where do i stand on these democratic proposals? this afternoon the senate will vote on a compromised background check proposal crafted by senators manchin, toomey, kirk and schumer, all experienced l
the person is. there is no positive i.d. we expect more details at a briefing from law enforcement in an hour and will bring that live. we've learned the identity of the third victim killed in the attack, lindsay liu. the school confirmed her identity earlier this afternoon. 8-year-old martin richard and 29-year-old krystle campbell were also killed in the horrible bombings. 178 people were injured and at least 100 have been released from area hospitals. i'm joined by john king and cnn analyst. juliet, start with you. you are a former homeland security official. what are you hearing on the latest of the developments especially when it comes to this individual who was spotted on videotape? >> essentially what you said, you know, that the idea they would have a name that soon seemed way too quick for someone in custody unless he was well known to law enforcement already or was under surveillance. right now this is exactly how you would expect an investigation to unfold. there will now be -- trying to figure out what his name is but, jake, the key is what are they going to say at 5:00? we should
on the books, now laws in our country. i think that's what we are going to have to do. we are going to have to find people, across the aisle, who we can work w. in order to pass legislation in this area of gun violence that will make a difference in the lives of millions of americans. >> mr. lynch. >> sure. i want to point out that we serve in the legislature with 435 members. you can't break for lunch without getting 218 votes. so whenever you hear a legislator saying i solve the cargo security issue, i'm responsible for port security even though i voted against t. i'm the one who is responsible for nuclear safety, i'm the one who did the assault weapons ban, look, the truth of the matter is ed has been on the side of big business. on ast at that -- 1/2 25 -- nafta on fishing rights, i'm with the fishermen, you're with the fish. on the banking issues, i'm with the taxpayers, and the people of america, you're with the big banks and the bailout. on all these issues on the telecommunications, you're with the telecommunications companies. >> that's quite a laundry list. let him respond. >> tha
. ratified by the senate or the law of the land. and it sounds to me like one of the punchlines of your account, even though washington powers did grow, he did have a republican understanding, which required him to be very attentive to the commitments that were made by the nation. in the 1770s, we were not in position to make international commitments, but we did it with didn't have a lot of statutes on the book, but we have resolutions. would you not say when it washingtons experiences the commander-in-chief has a constitutional obligation to take seriously the commitment the nation has made in conventions like the geneva convention. .. >> i think it's important for the commander-in-chief to be looking at commitments that we make. >> others? more questions? speeches? opinions about canada?

quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.
-- there are laws that say you cannot set up shop there unless you can prove your self-sufficient economically or you're not going to take a job from a french person. host: let's look a little bit more at "the hill" to find out what we know about the suspects in the boston bombing attacks. the bombing was allegedly carried out by chechens who immigrated to the united states. for a little bit of news, the latest on the suspect in the boston bombings, cnn reports that the surviving suspect has told investigators that his older brother, not any international terrorist group, asked her mind of the deadly cnn is attributing that to a government source. pulmonary interviews with dzhokhar tsarnaev indicate that the two brothers had the classification of self- radicalized jihadists. has conveyed -- dzhokhar tsarnaev has conveyed to investigators that his brother's motivation was jihaa jihadist p. here is the "washington post" -- the two brothers suspected of bombing the boston marathon appeared to be motivated by their religious faith, but do not appear to be connected to any terrorist group. we are a

number for a civilization. stronger gun laws can make a difference. calling in.you for this is the front page of " the washington times." michael is from rockville center, new york. caller: the reason this legislation failed is not only would it have not prevented the terrible tragedy that occurred in connecticut but also the tragedy in colorado. abroad is lacking because it would appear both parties have used this issue to raise money and at the same time not really address it responsibly. i think most americans are on to the fact that would appear you bringin -- that what you in personalities like cabby gifford or families from connecticut, at the end of the day we are failing to address the substantive problems that are far more concern to americans. are you a gun owner? caller: i am not. i would tell you from my own experience i am very fortunate. i know for a fact that a couple of my neighbors are law enforcement officials that carry guns. when we experienced the black hats here ends tropical storm standee there was a sense -- the black out here and tropical storm sandy there was a

are rampant at all of this times. i actually always find it best to just let the law enforcement officials do their job first. they did not need have rumors or innuendoes thrown around by public officials like me. that does not help the situation. host: what are you doing today? what will guest: your agenda my dad will be tried to stay on top of this as best as possible so they can pass information to others. today's the second most important day for those law enforcement people to do their investigation. they have to get this done as quickly as possible as evidence is available. god forbid if anyone is responsible and thinking about doing this again, before they strike again. host: is that a possibility? guest: you never know. those of the kind of things i like to stay away from. something you can do something like this is certainly an evil and crazy person. you never know what is on the mind of people. they almost always turn out to be, by any normal in definition of the term, insane. you cannot understand what would drive someone to kill innocent people. violence is a part of life, people
a good chance of passing the house and being signed into law by the president. the legislation is not perfect. there are provisions that most if not all senators can support. some will appeal to more than others. no one will like every provision. still images and our economy and neglect our humanitarian responsibilities. magnitudeof that would never be easy to address and never more necessary. cannot be achieved by means .arry it we have addressed labor needs of a growing and competitive economy with a workable worker policy and sensible expansion of hi visa programs. we make it more difficult for employers to hire people who come here illegally. we have confronted the reality of people who came here illegally by proposing lengthy practices and does not place lawful immigrants at a disadvantage. finally, we have recognized our most people who cross borders illegally overstay their visas have done so for the same reason that attracted other immigrants here -- to find economic opportunity and a better life for their families and to live in a society that values human dignity. we
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
,ming. mr. presiden this amendment protects the privacy and sety of law-abiding gun owners. when government officials release gun ownership information it puts many lives at risk. this includes the lives of lawful gun owners, the lived of law enforcement and the lives of ctheic violence. state or local governments that release private gun owner information will be penalized 5% of their federal program funding. this includes the release of private information on individuals 0 who have licenses to purchase or who possess or who carry firearms. the funding that's withheld will then be redistributed to the states that are in compliance. this amendment will ensure that gun owners across the nation do not have their private gun owner information publicly released. thank you, mr. president. and i urge all my colleagues to support the amendment. mr. leahy: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont. mr. leahy: this is a case of washington being big brother and telling each one of the states whether it's wyoming, vermont, or connecticut here's what you have to do. we have no idea
provided by the commentators, pundits and law professors who made it seem acceptable in the minds of the public in the wake of 9/11. that is why the after math of an event like boston, we have a duty to fight the darkest impulses in ourselves, in our fellow country men and women, to make clear to our leader that is we desire security and justice and the application of the rule of law. that there is no reason that our remarkably capable law enforcement officials and courts can't handle apprehending, trying and convicting the perpetrators of this slaughter and it is why i was so angered and disappointed when i saw david weigel report that susan collins said this today. what do we do once we capture the individual? how is he treated, if he's an american, then the constitutional protection pertain. if he is a foreign national, he should be held by a military tribunal and not read his mir randa rights. yes, susan collins, a voice of reason and bipartisan reason. telling reporters that if the person apprehended has beens to be a foreign national -- what a disgrace and what an insult to
source say an arrest has been made. >> federal law enforcement source tells me that an arrest has been made. >> federal source tells her an arrest has been made. >> a suspect is about to be arrested. the suspect is to be taken into custody by federal marshals and taken to a courthouse. that tells us a lot, that tells us they've got him. >> one arrest, this vague description of brown skin, whether foreign or domestic. >> and now it is being told to fox news -- to a fox news reporter, indeed, an arrest has been made. >> according to the a.p., the suspect has been taken by u.s. marshals to a federal courthouse. >> we are being told by our foxnews.com reporter that an arrest has been made. >> take a half a step back, this has accelerated incredibly quickly. >> some are reporting an arrest has been made and some are reporting that's not the case. here's the truth, we don't know. >> conflicting reports about an arrest. tom? >> i have actually three separate sources, but two that are very highly placed and close to the investigation that have just told me that there's been no arrest. >> okay,
>> is this evident? >>> well more than the evidence is law enforcement and others have said at the federal state and local level and indeed from the region, we have an unprecedented level of law enforcement support and they are working very well. >> what is the process so far that helps you understand maybe for the materials and the level of complementty of the device -- complexity and the origin of the devise? >> i think i know what you are getting at. i can't comment on that aspect of that. what is important to say, what i would like to on behalf of the boston j.t. tf today, they say there is no known threat where we are conducting investigative activity and i want to put that out to the citizens and the city of boston and the commonwealth of massachusetts. >> do you know anything about the nature of device -- [inaudible] >> i am not going to be able to comment on the nature of the device right now. >> are they in custody right now? >> i'm not going to say who or who might not be in custody right now. >> is there one person from ocean avenue that are -- and [inaudible]. >>
security for the marathon already in place. the first step law enforcement took was to secure the physical area around the blast for the purpose of preserving evidence in the area related to the devices itself. this morning, the f.b.i. along with boston pd, massachusetts state police and atf begin it's recovery effort at the site. their goal was to recover physical items related to the blast. those items have been recovered and sent to the f.b.i.'s laboratory. they are specialized exertion will reconstruct the devices and determine the makeup and components. among items partially recovered are pieces of black nylon which could be from a backpack that look like bbs and nails possibly contained in a appreciate cooker device. we are going to quantico, virginia for a complete analysis. it was determined both of the explosives were placed in a dark-colored nylon nylon bag. the bag would have been heavy because of components in it. it's difficult to determine specific components used until we can eliminate other factors. in fact, we won't know with some certainty until the laboratory completes t
will be placed on the record for those who stood up for sensible gun safety laws in america. i think jo put it well. the parents who have come here and the family members -- i think joe put it well. the parent to have come here in the family members, we need to find a political courage with the disappointment in this vote today. this is not the end. there is more that we can do and will do. reaching out to convince members who voted the other way today and perhaps in the next election to challenge them. bring the issue forward to the american people. this is worth the fight. we have got to stand up to bring sensible gun safety to america. god forbid what tomorrow's victims will be, but we know they will be there. we have to do everything we can to spare another family from this agree. thank you. let me salute all of my andeagues, particularly joe the families who have lit a candle. that is a hard, hard thing to do when you go through what they went through. you do not want to get out of bed, let alone come here and argue truth to power, which you have done. it will not be forgotten. it will
stymied investigators and caused a lot of fear in the law community. >>> we'll begin in texas with search and rescue teams. they are combing through the debris in an incident at the west fertilizer plant. and i did say search and rescue, as the plant continues to smolder this afternoon, authorities are not ready to give up on finding survivors trapped in the rubble from the blast. it could be felt 50 miles away. we don't know yet how many people are missing, but they do include several members of the area's all-volunteer fire department. scores of people were injured in the blast. there's a heavy police presence, of course, in neighborhoods damaged by the blast. only search and rescue teams are being allowed in. there's been one isolated report of looting and many, many reports of neighbors helping neighbor. this all started when the fire broke out in the fertilizer plant in the tiny north central texas town of west, population 2,600. last evening, right as people wrapped up dinner. some drove closer to the plant to watch, that's when it exploded. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hea
with law enforcement officers in north texas because he promised that he would not ever return to prison. 1 days later, back in kaufman, texas, mike mcclellen and his wife, cynthia, was sitting at home when their home was invaded by intruders. mike was shot 20 times and his wife, cynthia, was also murdered. assaulted, murdered in their own home. the district attorney, mike mcclellen, had vowed to bring the scum to justice who killed his colleague, mark hassey. three fallen law enforcement officers and one family member. and just yesterday, a woman in jail in texas is accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill assistant district attorney rob pryor and also injure the district attorney in montgomery county, texas, to mimic the kaufman county shootings. these attacks, mr. speaker, are attacks on the symbol of the rule of law in the united states. these attacks also hit home for me and others of us who have worked at the courthouse. i spent part of my life as a prosecutor and a judge in texas. bad guys come to the courthouse charged with everything from stealing to killing, and i, like many oth
in all of these events has been the interaction between federal law enforcement and local law enforcement. in the 1993 world trade center bombing because that was really a federal facility, the federal government got involved but immediately almost had a fistfight between fbi and atf. so now what you've got it looks like a good working relationship between president obama and governor deval patrick has allowed a very smooth handoff from the boston police to the fbi. in watching just the press conferences so far, they've been sending the right signals of having a joint communicative working relationship. and that's critical to having an effective investigation. >> you and i were talking before about lockerbie, how you could determine through finding little particles of machinery that this was perhaps done by a certain kind of detonator. how far along are we? we already know now it was something to do with a circuit board. what does that tell you? >> they're saying they found a circuit board. how big of a piece, we don't know. remember in another case, it was about the size of your thumbnai
for that video to be submitted to law-enforcement. that was a very effective member -- and effective method. morning's "wall street journal," -- you say no? guest: the identification was fairly quick and effective. there were numerous sources online. enforcement tow quickly anidentify the suspects. -- butoston best investigators you did -- boston investigators used a video from various sources. in the fourth amendment it hinges on the idea you have kept reasonable expectation of privacy. do you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you are walking on a public street? a tricky question. oftentimes it comes down to this question. you do not have an expectation of privacy in a public street. but you also did not have the expectation that everything you say and do is going to be recorded, that that recording is going to be retained indefinitely, perhaps catalogued in a database in the federal government. he did not have the expectation that every one of your conference stations are going to be recorded in kept forever. this is a tricky and thorny question that comes up with the surveill
about the zoning laws in texas? >> stephanie: lack of government regulation! they had like a zillion times more -- than you're allowed to have and how many feet from a school! >> a school and a nursing home! that shouldn't happen! >> stephanie: i can't remember the number. i'll get to it. hello! that's rand paul's libertarian pair dice. fertilizer plant with however many tons you want. >> near an active fault zone. >> stephanie: hmm? anyway so obviously lots of breaking news left and right. you were saying the latest i guess is that the -- dzhokhar. i feel like i'm in the cone head sketch. dzhokhar. he is responding to written questions. he's not talking yet. >> he has a wound in their neck. they're not sure if it was self-inflicted. a tube down his neck but he can write. so he is answering questions. >> stephanie: so no word about what we're finding out or not so far. but anyway, so far from dzhokhar. sorry. i'm a little punchy from last week. >> that was a help of a news newsweek. >> like the onion said, cheese us this week. >> stephanie: really? what else now. speaking of what els
shins occurred 50-100 yards apart and each scene resulted in multiple casualties. >> according to law enforcement the first bomb exploded as the marathon sports running store. the second blast happened a few yards away. authorities believe the explosion shins were caused by small portable devices with ball bearings -- white house is calling the incident and act of terror. he made it clear whoever is responsible will be brought to ju justice. >> we still do not know who did this or why and people shouldn't jump to condition kluges shins before we have all the facts -- conclusions. but make no mistake we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did. this we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals or groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> now police initially said a third explosion happened at the john f. kennedy library but later said it was related to a fire. also tonight i spoke with a woman who's family recently moved to boston. their 25-year-old son mike johnson was running in the marathon and he was crossing the finish line when the bomb e
